Pastelles for Christmas at C.R.A.F.T

Hi there, how are you doing? Nearly ready for the big day?  Today's card is my GDT project for C.R.A.F.T challenge where the theme is 'pastelles for Christmas'

This week we have 2 generous sponsors so don't miss out as that means there are 2 prizes up for grabs! One lucky winner will receive 4 images and a paperpack (or 5 images) from Robyn's Fetish

Our other lucky winner will receive either 3 digi stamps or 2 cling stamps from 2 cute rubber stamps!

I've made a shaped easel, cut out with nesties and inked with tumbled glass distress ink. The image is from our sponsor Robyn's Fetish, I've coloured with with promarkers and added Ranger Black enamel accents for his eyes. Once that was dry (don't you just hate waiting for things to dry?? I do lol) I added lots of judikins prisma glitter to the melting snowman and then decoupages his hat, scarf, gloves and pipe. I've added a marianne die cut snowflakes, some ribbon from my stash and plenty of stickles.

The sentiment is computer generated, inked with pale blue ink,  and attached to a Creative Acrylic tag with glue and stickles to make it look like ice. I'm really pleased with the effect :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's: Fancy folds/shaped cards
Digital Tuesday: Winter Wonderland
Drunken Stampers: Glittery Holiday
Fussy and Fancy: Monochromatic and sparkle
Stamp'n'doodle: Its Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday: Anything Christmas

I don't know where this week is going, I'm still nowhere near organised for Christmas eeeek!  Hubby has been in hospital this week, he's ok and home now but with that and work I don't seem to have had a minute so I'll be battling the crowds in my lunch hour to do a bit more Christmas shopping lol

Thanks for calling by
